-Got Backgrounds job at Boulder! WIN!

-Completed the intro course for Cross Fit! WIN!
-Actually began seeing a therapist! WIN!

There was also less cool stuff that happened, like learning my limit when it comes to after hours work and personal projects. Kart's staying where it is for now, because I don't have the juice to get it done myself.
I made a comic for DCCC that didn't get printed because the quality of the finish wasn't high enough, and the Teeny Rex physical copies embarrass me to this day.
I decided to stop doing comic cons for a few years, unless I have a good tangible book to show. It's a disservice to put all the time into drawing and then have a literal lacklustre finish.

Doing streams for Rover was a lot of pressure, but I liked the idea of getting work out more regularly. Gonna have a think about doing it again. Gotta make something, otherwise what's the point? Whatever it is, let's make it great!
